The most common question we are asked is “what is the benefit of spending extra money on wireless headsets for their office?” Bottom line is that apart from no cords, which mean no tangles, you get freedom. Freedom to move around on a call and if you get a remote lifter you can even answer calls on wireless headsets away from your desk. The best testimonial from customers is that if they have used wireless headsets before will never downgrade to a cheaper corded alternative unless their current office budget doesn’t permit. In this case we’ve even had people chip in the extra money themselves because they know the benefits and use their wireless headsets every day. [See our complete range of wireless headsets here]
Some people also think that the quality of wireless headsets must be less than that of their corded counterparts because there is no direct connect. The fact is that the wireless technology employed (now DECT 6.0 for many leading brands) is so good that you could not pick the difference. Also because wireless headsets are more expensive, manufacturers often use much better technology in the speakers and microphones so the sound quality is actually better on wireless models.
Manufacturers do this because they want to be able to differentiate between the cheaper models and the more expensive wireless headsets to value add. Let’s face it, they want you to spend as much as possible so, just like cars, they feature pack the top of the line models. But what sort of extra features do you get? Wireless headsets can connect not only to office desk phones but also your computer via USB for Skype and video conferencing calls as well as your mobile phone via Bluetooth. That means you can have one wireless headset for all your office communication. For the right environment this is very cool and offers incredible productivity and comfort improvements to the office worker.
What we find is that if you buy one of these all in one units you are future proofing yourself. They cost a little more but the alternative is to buy multiple headsets for the different applications and this actually works out to be far more expensive in most cases.
The other thing that people often get wrong is that wireless headsets don’t use Bluetooth to connect ( this is only for connecting to computers and mobiles. The problem with Bluetooth is it has a much smaller range (11m) versus the wireless range afforded by DECT technology (up to 150m). DECT is the same technology you find in a cordless phone at home. This allows you to walk and talk 10 times as far and is brilliant for larger office environments.[See our complete range of Office Headsets here]
